Enjoyed walking around to see the grounds. Lovely waterfall with statues in the back. Small cafe on sight. Great place to take photos. There was a large clock that had lovely chimes. Worth the stop if you are in Dresden.

Beautiful Baroque palace is a must-see in any visit to Dresden. Be sure to allow time to see the incredible art collection - considered one of the finest in Europe. The porcelain collection, in another wing of the Zwinger, is awe-inspiring...Don't miss it!

We got the combo ticket to all three museums. But the Zwinger was the most spectacular if you like fine art. Many great paintings to view. The Porcelain Collection was extensive. The mathematics museum was not as interesting to me, but then all those large telescopes, compasses and protractors were not as interesting to me, but I am sure there... More

If you have only one day in Dresden I highly reccomend seeing the Zwinger. Even if you just walk the grounds its Free and well worth it.

During a daytrip visit to Dresden, I never intended to spend much time in any attraction , but when I entered its vast interior, I was immediately enchanted by it glamourous architecture. I coudn't resist taking tens of photos of this brilliantly preserved monument. There are exhibitions inside as well, but unfortunately I had no time.

This museum was created by Augustus the Great and was the first of a series of buildings to be rebuilt after the war. The middle building housed orange trees during the winter. There are collections of porcelain. Sculptures are made from sandstones. The black color is a patina to protect the sculptures from the weather.

The museum has beautiful pictures. Some of them very dear to me. I saw the portrait of Margo de Values, I was reading a lot of that person, never know how she looks like.

By the time we got to this "attraction", not a fair description but when you're suffering from Kulturblitzkreig, its hard to keep the enthusiasm levels high (or spirit levels, as M Knopfler might say). I never cease to really marvel at the reconstruction of Dresden, even under Communism, and this is another glowing example of the masons achievements. However, the... More
